Sienna’s Nursery Reveal

Sienna’s Nursery Reveal

Posted on Apr 7, 2016 in DIY, interior design | No Comments

When I first sat down and created an inspiration board for Sienna’s nursery, I knew I wanted to use neutrals, metallics and punches of coral and mint. I wanted a more ‘grown up,’ vintage-inspired nursery that Sienna could enjoy for years to come. The room turned out just as I imagined, and I love that […]

This bookcase was my second attempt at painting furniture after my octagon table upcycle. I again used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Graphite, but did not mix it with any Old White this time. I sanded the edges like I did the octo table, but decided to go for a more subtle distressing for this […]

I actually purchased this table with a local thrift store Groupon, and it only cost me $12! This was my first furniture painting attempt, and the first time using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. If you haven’t yet heard about this paint, its claim to fame is that it adheres to just about any surface and […]

I so easily forget how far we’ve come in updating the design of our home until I look back at progress pics from when we first moved in. One of the first updates we made after moving in was to paint the awful pink accent walls in the living room and kitchen. We chose ‘Ethiopia’ […]

This morning I walked outside and for the first time felt that fall was in the air! I had a pumpkin spice latte from Starbucks this past weekend, so I guess it’s official! I’m definitely ready for scarves, boots, crisp air, no humidity [hence good hair days!] crock pot dinners, and football! Last fall I […]

As much as I just LOVED the border of roses, soaps, seashells, and perfumes that the previous owners had installed in our guest bathroom [haha what a disaster,]  I was so excited to finally get started on this project! Taking off the border was a breeze compared to the last one I removed, [the bedroom […]

The front yard is starting to shape up! I can’t take the credit for this before and after, although I did contribute some weeding! Kyle spent several days in 90+ degree weather ripping out the old plants and flowers that looked like weeds, [those purple flowers were beautiful for a week, and then just looked […]
